Why do some of your products contain trans-fats and/or partially hydrogenated oils? How can a product have zero grams of trans fats and still use hydrogenated oils?
We are aware of the health concerns regarding trans-fats. We have invested significant resources to find suitable ingredient replacements to reduce or remove trans-fats from our foods.
This is a challenge to do without impacting taste, texture and freshness. We remain
dedicated to achieving this goal in existing products that still contain trans-fats, as
well as in any future products we introduce.
According to FDA labeling regulations a product can be labeled 0 grams trans fats while still containing partially hydrogenated oils if they contain less up to 0.5 grams trans fat.
